Heaven’s Gate!

on

Is there a gate for happiness? Do we all have to squeeze in through that opening to be happy? Answer is ..a big “no”.. its just a mirage people try to chase unfortunately! There is no yardstick or finishing line for happiness either!Β Happiness is not something comes to you because you did something. Happiness is something within yourself. That’s why we see rich celebrities committing suicide while homeless singing happy songs! Acceptance of things as they happen to you is the key to happiness. You need to see things differently, always try give acceptable reason to anything happening to you which is beyond your control and move on. Never curse on yourself, remember you only have yourself to support! If you don’t, you are in great danger of self destruction. Everyone’s happiness index is different. So never compare yourself to someone else. If you do, you are doing injustice to yourself. Believe me…There is no heavens gate! You create heaven!

  1. Yes, indeed happiness is an inside job. It really doesn’t matter how rich , successful or good looking you are, If you don’t how to take care of your inner world and develop a right outlook towards life, you are bound to sink into your own self created pit. Amazing picture with a mystical feel πŸ‘Œ

      The picture is from 1000 year old temple “Belur Halebeed” from south India. There is already a post on it in my blog!

  2. Well said. People that are not happy most of the time blame others for it and don’t accept that things didn’t go their way. We create our own hell on earth if we can’t accept our faith and work with it.

  5. A wonderful post. I just looked up the quote, “The mind is the reality. You are what you think.” – Alfred Bester (unless someone’s mind is messed up).

      Thanks Minty, I am not a saint, but I strongly believe in these lines.. and I follow them strictly.. Now I a can proudly say that “I was never sad or repented” about anything in life so far. Not because nothing undesirable happened.. because I accept things.. You can do only what you can do… whats not in your control..dont worry about them.. glad you were able to get the essence of them. ✌️

      Good question… but I don’t have an answer..! 😌 Sometimes I get it spontaneously….probably based on daily happenings… I think everyone gets these thoughts but failed to record it!.. Thank you very much for your appreciation though!
